Montpelier provides small town charm with big city flavor. Exquisite historic buildings are home to Vermont's state government, shopping, commerce and world-class dining and arts. Outstanding outdoor recreation is within minutes of the downtown. Montpelier is the largest urban historic district in Vermont. The crown jewel is the impeccably restored State House - one of the oldest and best preserved in the country. Three blocks away is the city's unique business district. Linger at independently-owned shops offering books, recordings, clothing, fine crafts and pastries, or dine in one of the many restaurants, cafes or delis in the city. Our thriving arts community has earned Montpelier recognition as being one of the best 100 small towns in the United States. Our recreation opportunities are second to none.
